Collectively team members at 1Energy have experience of developing more than 45 heat networks including E.On Community Energy, the UK’s largest heat network, the Bristol Heat Network and the Bradford Energy Network.

Large-scale heat networks are planned for Milton Keynes, Bradford, Rotherham and Exeter.

Bradford – a case study

1Energy has secured £20m of Green Heat Network Funding to construct and operate the Bradford Energy Network (BEN) – a heat network underway in Bradford. The BEN will initially connect to around 30 buildings across public and private sectors, with ambitions to grow steadily from this base.

Construction began in 2023 with a target of becoming fully operational in 2025.
